Character importing from ME1 to ME2
I have a question regarding the character import from ME1 to ME2 - the game saves for the last time right before confronting Saren. Since it doesn't save after that, does that mean any decisions you make after that are inconsequential? Because it seems to me that Shepard's responses to the ambassador at the end should have some bearing on the next game.

Save file that transfers your character is not the usual save file and is created after you defeat Saren. Unfortunately it happens before you choose human representative. That's BioWare's oversight.

Never done that with me. Since i choose anderson for the rep that's always been picked up by the import to ME2. since if you don't import udina is choosen.AFAIK it's the last save that's imported, not the save when you beat Saren

You're wrong. The human representative gets chosen when you fly to the Illusive Man and MIranda and Jacob are testing your memory. You just always picked Anderson and thought that it gets imported. But in that space car history can be changed.

The transfer file has name Char_[a bunch of numbers that identify your character]_year_month_day.MassEffectSave, and it's created only after you defeat Saren.

Nope anderson is only picked if you have the interactive comic, it defaults to udina otherwise

Import one of your save files and choose Udina in that conversation.

Alternatively you can open your imported save file in Save Editor[social.bioware.com] and see that the flag isn't there. And if you set the flag manually Miranda won't even ask who is the human representative.

Where do I find the comic? I have the deluxe version or something, so I think it was supposed to come with it.

My import worked fine although I was disappointed that my armor didn't port over with me... although it didn't matter after about five minutes on the Normandy anyway.

Speaking of armor though, I'm using one of the DLC armors and now Shepard never takes his helmet off. Is there a fix for that? It's really annoying through all the character development scenes and he's the only one in full armor and helmet.

No the digital comic was sold as a DLC for those that didn't play the first game. It let them make the major choices of the game, love interest, who you save, if wrex lives or dies, who gets the councilors seat.

That's why i know the imported file works the same way (which i'll be able to confirm again in a few houras since im almost finished playinth through ME 1 again)
Hope you`ll excuse me from breaking the topic, i`m getting sad. I got ME1 on Steam, had a full walktrough. Then, i installed ME2 from the box(steam refused to register, the game itself installed well), planning to import the save from ME1, but it fails to find it. I scanned the Steam files with ME2 configuration programme - still the same. Where do i find my saves?

我玩完ME1时 ,当结局动画结束时,为什么不会自动储存的? 导致我玩ME2时,电脑找不到ME1的储存档案。请求帮帮忙,谢谢!
